How does Botox address aging signs ?
Botox injections have been used in medicine for many years, especially in neurology. Botox is now one of the most popular non-invasive cosmetic treatment in the world. Botox blocks the production of acetylcholine in the muscle, which insures communication between the nerve and the muscle, causing the temporary paralysis of the muscle.
Botox injections have become the gold standard facial rejuvenation treatment. By relaxing the muscles responsible for dynamic wrinkles, wrinkles are progressively alleviated and the face look refreshed and rested.
Botox is usually injected in the upper part of the face. The substance is injected through painless micro-injections in the targeted muscles with no prior anesthesia. The treatment, which is only a few minutes long, can be performed multiple times to extend the duration of the result. (the body natrurally gets rid of the botulinum toxin in 4 to 8 weeks).
